Professional development is all about continuous learning and education so that you, as a nurse, can provide the very best of health care services to your clients / patients.
Nurses are expected to recognize and respond to a plethora of new demands arising from an ever-changing and increasingly complex healthcare system. Multiple new regulations and accreditations processes, professional standards, increased accountabilities, and financial priorities require more of direct care nurses and nurse leaders already struggling to gain and sustain competencies in evolving arenas of practice, quality, and safe patient care. Today’s politico-societal healthcare environments include growing shifts and disconnects in patient care needs and the availability of human, material, and fiscal resources required to meet those needs.
Evidenced Based Practice
Evidence-based practice is a science-to-service model of engagement of critical thinking to apply research-based evidence (scientific knowledge) and practice-based evidence (art of nursing) within the context of patient values to deliver quality, cost-sensitive care. Practice-based evidence is a practice-to-science model in which data are derived from interventions thought to be effective but for which empirical evidence is lacking.
Certification gauges a nurse's ability to provide excellent care. Colleagues and employers respect ANCC-certified nurses as experts in their specialties. We encourage our nurses to take charge of their careers by earning certification through American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
